|We all have our times as when illness strikes us down
or when we need to just sit
back and review all of our life's happenings;
think over our problems, and talk things over
with the power that is greater, and can lift many
of our burdens, if we will just let Him do it.
then you will realize just as I have just why.......
|I NEEDED THE QUIET|
|I NEEDED THE QUIET, SO HE DREW ME ASIDE
INTO THE SHADOWS WHERE WE COULD CONFIDE.
AWAY FROM THE BUSTLE IN WHICH ALL THE DAYS LONG
I HURRIED AND WORRIED WHEN I WAS ACTIVE AND STRONG.
I NEEDED THE QUIET; THO AT FIRST I REBELLED
BUT GENTLY, SO VERY GENTLY, MY HEART HE UPHELD--
HE TALKED IN A HUSH OF SWEET SPIRITUAL THINGS
AND THO WEAKENED IN BODY--MY SPIRIT TOOK WINGS...
HE TOOK ME THRU BEAUTY TO HEIGHTS NEVER DREAMED
THRU STREETS OF SOFT SILVER THAT SO QUIELY GLEAMED
SUCH BEAUTY NOT THOUGHT OF WHEN ACTIVE AND GAY
YES, HE LOVED ME SO GREATLY--HE DREW ME AWAY.
I NEEDED THE QUIET--NO PRISON THIS BED!
BUT A BEAUTIFUL, LUSH VALLEY OF BLESSINGS INSTEAD.
A PLACE TO GROW SPIRITUALLY RICHER--IN JESUS TO HIDE
YES, I NEEDED THIS QUIET, SO HE DREW ME ASIDE.
